Paul Pierce is the biggest victor in the Cavs-Lakers trade

Houston Rockets v Cleveland Cavaliers

Houston Rockets v Cleveland Cavaliers

Thomas, who was traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers, was originally scheduled to be at Hec Edmundson Pavilion on February 15 for the Huskies' game against Utah.

While Thomas clearly wasn't fitting in with the Cavaliers, he only was one of a slew of players traded by Cleveland before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

This cuts Thomas' brief stint in Cleveland short after 15 games since returning from his hip injury where he averaged 14.7 points per game.

In the first big move of deadline day, the Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.to the Cavs for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and Cleveland's own 2018 first-round pick.

Also, Cleveland got younger and managed to keep the Nets pick for this upcoming Draft, so they're pretty much letting LeBron know they're not counting with him anymore beyond this season, and that they've had it with him and his attitude.

Wade, who signed with the Cavs in September following a buyout deal with the Chicago Bulls, is headed back to his old team in the Miami Heat, according to a report from ESPN.

"I'm exhausted of being traded", Thomas told Cleveland.com on Wednesday.

Cleveland Cavs: Trade Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz.

There were those were critical of the deal, especially considering Thomas was one of the centerpieces of the trade that sent multi-time Eastern Conference All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics back in August.

The Lakers have always been connected to LeBron James.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George is also a Lakers target that could now be viable with the additional salary cap space. But I just want to be where I'm wanted. (7) will look to become contributors for the Cleveland Cavaliers for the remainder of the season. "That's not a good thing".

"He's worked too hard to get back, and he's a ball-dominant player", Thomas' agent, Aaron Goodwin, told cleveland.com. It hasn't been as planned, but I definitely want to be here. "I think everything else at that point is irrelevant". Maybe it will be enough to convince James to remain in Cleveland for at least another year.
